Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! Beechwood Middle School (BMS) completed its third year with many achievements and much to celebrate thanks to our staff, students, parents, and community.
One of the most notable accomplishments included authorization as an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. Consequently, BMS is guided by the International Baccalaureate’s (IB) mission to “develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through international understanding and respect” and is committed to fulfilling the vision and mission of Lexington County School District One to empower each child to design the future.
With this in the forefront of all we do, we offer a rigorous, inquiry-based, global, and holistic course of study that prepares students for any of Lexington District One’s multiple college and career readiness pathways.
Through the IB’s Approaches to Learning skills, Learner Profile traits, and an experiential curriculum that includes exploratory course offerings in the areas of design, arts, world language, and physical education, BMS cultivates the real-world connection and application of skills to guarantee continuous relevant learning. Our teachers are committed to providing our students meaningful, engaging, and responsive instruction.
At BMS, all of our students will be able to pursue their gifts in academics, arts, athletics, or other unique abilities while at the same time developing as well-rounded young people who are creative and reflective citizens. Our BMS faculty and staff are committed to differentiating and advocating for ALL of our students and establishing strong connections with our families and community.
